The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) Training Academy at the November 8, 2018 meeting in Glynco, GA.
The NCIS Training Academy initiates, conducts, and directs criminal, counterintelligence, terrorism, and security related investigations and operations with a Navy nexus on and off naval installations and aboard ships. The NCIS Training Academy mission is to provide relevant, timely, substantive, and cost effective training programs that supply the tools needed to build a highly skilled NCIS workforce. With responsibility over all NCIS basic, advanced, and in-service training programs, the Academy serves as the premier provider of training for NCIS employees. The Academy’s goal is to ensure training supports U.S. naval forces to fight and prevail in conventional wars, insurgencies, piracy, and other challenges ashore, at sea, and in cyberspace.
The FLETA Board is the accrediting body for all federal law enforcement training and support programs. To achieve accreditation, agencies submit to an independent review of their academy and/or program to ensure compliance with the FLETA Standards and Procedures in the areas of Program Administration, Training Staff, Training Development, Training Delivery, and Distance Learning. Accreditation is a cyclical process occurring every five years. Each year, agencies must submit annual reports in preparation for reaccreditation, which is a new and independent review of the academy/program.
